What do you guys wear to the pool/beach/sprinkler over your bathing suit? I love to use the fact that I don’t have pesky bra straps to worry about and wear something with an open back. Personally, open-backed clothing items confuse and frighten me because I have boobs, and what am I supposed to do with them if I can’t have a strap? But the halter bathing suit top opens up a world of exciting opportunities for dresses and tops I can’t otherwise wear (unless I do a little research into those boob-sticker thingies that some ladies swear by).
This dress is a perfect example of a beach-only dress for me. Open back, halter top with a little too much room in the chest to remain flat against me, and an almost totally obnoxious print. Other beach cover up ideas:
- Something sheer. Why not try a sheer tunic? It’s a way to do sheer that’s not lingerie and doesn’t involve complicated undergarments, or daytime bra exposure.
- Something with giant armholes. I love a little bikini top showing through, especially if your bathing suit is a cute color or print.
- Deep deep v-neck tops or light dresses. Again, a little bathing suit top showing through is adorable!
Forgive my lack of examples, but I will be updating later on, so check my Facebook page for my latest beach cover-up finds! Also, a link to my podcast from Friday’s radio show now resides on my Features page, so check it out if you wanna!
